    It seems that the next version of Android will be known as “Lollipop”, at least if this massive hint by the company is anything to go by. As spotted by our pals at ShinyShiny, Google posted the above image of a birthday cake to celebrate its 16th birthday… but with the cake adorned with not candles, but lollipops. This would continue Google’s confectionary-themed naming tradition. Previous iterations of the handheld OS have been known as KitKat, Jelly Bean, Gingerbread and so on. As we already know, the new OS will be getting some “material” changes too.

  • Quick Caps made to thwart bicycle wheel thieves

    Ben Coxworth
    29 Sep 2014 | 2:37 pm
    While quick-release hubs certainly make it easier for cyclists to remove and reinstall their wheels when doing things like fixing flats, they also make it very easy to steal those same wheels. As a result, riders typically have to remove the front wheel when locking up their bike, or run a secondary cable lock from it to the main U-lock. Quick Caps, however, are designed to make doing so unnecessary – they're little padlocks for the quick-release levers. ..

    A few years back, mathematician and musician Jules Hotrique combined two passions to develop a new arrangement of musical notes called the dualo principle. After creating a number of keyboard instrument prototypes based on this patented geometric model, he joined forces with his computer engineer and musician friend Bruno Verbrugghe to form the Dualo Company in 2011.

Abdullah, a devout Muslim, celebrated returning an interception for a touchdown by getting on his knees and praying. Players regularly exhibit Christian prayers during touchdown celebrations, but unlike Abdullah, are never penalized for doing so.

Ideally, these would be situated in the high-end shopping areas where high-end watch stores currently reside. Stay tuned for more thoughts on this.

    As the markets for tablets and smartphones continue to mature and saturate, I believe we’re heading towards some important changes. Specifically, I think the time for mass market smartphones and tablets is rapidly nearing an end. It’s not that we won’t have any big products, but post-iPhone 6, I think it’s going to be much harder for any vendors (including Apple) to create something that has enormous mass appeal. The reasons for my thinking are pretty simple. As people have become more comfortable and familiar with smartphones (and tablets), they’ve started to realize the specific…

In a recent interview with Bloomberg, Google Chairman Eric Schmidt reinforced this idea when he was asked about Apple’s success with the iPhone 6 and he stated: “I’ll tell you what I think,” Schmidt said. “Samsung had these products a year ago.” Bloomberg reporter Stephanie Ruhle quickly pointed out, however, that…

  • How it Happened and What it Was Like to Spend Two Hours with Steve Wozniak, Founder of Apple

    8 Sep 2014 | 12:07 am
    By: Hillel Fuld (@Hilzfuld) Many years ago (ok, not that many but 5 years in virtual land is a lot!), I decided I was going to interview people who inspire me. Since then, I have been doing so as often as I can. Here are all my superstar interviews. When I first decided to try to reach these people, I set my goals quite high and even made myself laugh at the thought of ever accomplishing the goal of meeting and/or interviewing the Woz. Well, it took me all those years but then a few months back, I managed to land my Woz interview. That is old news though, so why am I telling you this? Well,…
  • How and Why to Interview Superstars with Twitter and Google+

While these interviews have been a great experience for me to learn from some of the biggest names out there, the main advantage has been the relationships I have created. I love the fact that I can DM Alyssa Milano or joke around with Robert Scoble. I have spoken to Mike McCue on the phone (he is just as nice as online), and I am always learning from Chris Pirillo. Why am I telling you this? Because, as awesome as…

    By: Hillel Fuld (@hilzfuld) As you might have noticed, I like to interview people. Really important people. I literally made myself a list of individuals that I would one day, somehow, hope to have the privilege to interview. Some of them were a little out there. You know, people like the actress Alyssa Milano (remember Who’s the Boss? Good times.), Om Malik, the father of tech journalism, and even Steve Wozniak who founded this small company called Apple with his buddy Steve Jobs in their garage. I set myself some pretty high goals and so far, so good. Alyssa Milano One of the people…

I mean, we all know that prior to every big Apple launch of any kind, the rumor mill goes into high gear. How often are those rumors accurate? Not very often… But then there are some sources that you just know are reliable. Marques Brownlee is one such source.

    By: Hillel Fuld (@hilzfuld) Listen, I have no intention of starting an iOS vs Android debate here so if that is why you opened this article, allow me to introduce you to the little X in the corner… I use an iPhone 5S as my daily phone and until recently, there was no way I was going to replace that with an Android device. Yes, I am fully aware that some of the newer Android flagship devices are more impressive than the iPhone, in both personality and looks, but for me, despite many MANY attempts, I stuck with iPhone. I have played with the Nexus 5. I have even played with the HTC M8.

    Makeovers aren't just for reality TV. Most video game redesigns incorporate new characters, along with detailed costumes and evolving physiques. Just ask Lara Croft, the titular character of the successful Tomb Raider series. Since 1996, she's been nipped and tucked all over, constantly varying her original outfit. She's not the only one — from the ladies of Street Fighter, to the timeless Princess Zelda, many an iconic female character has been the product of a new program design. Sometimes the changes are severe and sexual, and sometimes they're near insignificant, signaling a…

    Hopefully you've already heard of the Bechdel test, which asks if a film (or, really, any work of fiction) meets three criteria: There are two or more female characters with names, they talk to each other and the topic of conversation is about something other than a man It seems simple enough, but as of June, half of 2014's films failed the test. Now, according to a new U.N.-backed report from the Geena Davis Institute on Gender and Media, we see that women aren't equally represented in their on-screen professions, either.

    Here on Techdirt we've been pretty scathing about the way that Big Pharma develops drugs -- often poorly -- and then uses patent monopolies to keep prices so high that only rich Westerners can afford them. Of course, it's easy to complain about the flaws of the current approach, but are there any alternatives? We've already covered one -- using prizes - and now Carl Levinson points us to another potentially powerful approach: crowdsourcing. It's already been adopted by 'Project Marilyn' to develop a patent-free anti-cancer drug: The campaign will fund a xenograft experiment, which is the next…

    Techdirt has written often enough about how copyright is used to censor criticism. has an interesting post that offers a variation on that theme: copyright getting in the way of a scientific debate. A band of researchers has been tirelessly trying to demonstrate that a body of scientific work which rests on a paper from over 10 years ago is completely wrong. The only problem is, their argument isn't being allowed to stand or fall on its merits -- instead, copyright restrictions are interfering with their ability to make their case at all. The issue is that in order to…
  • DailyDirt: Traveling Fast Via Waterways

    Michael Ho
    29 Sep 2014 | 5:00 pm
    An enormous amount of cargo travels by boat, and historically, sea transport has been the largest carrier of freight. However, traveling over water isn't a very speedy mode of transportation (typically <20 mph), but there are some possible ways to go faster (though they don't come cheap). Here are just a few examples of sea-going ships that would definitely beat a slow boat to China. Chinese researchers are working on making super-fast submarines that can travel over 750 mph. The vessels would rely on supercavitation (aka forming bubbles around the ship) and some kind of liquid-membrane…

    Issued in 1981, updated in 1991 (to consolidate power, basically) and continuously expanded (mostly unofficially) since 2001, Executive Order 12333 (EO 12333) is what grants surveillance powers to our nation's intelligence agencies. Foreshadowing the severe twisting of the English language that follows (see also: NSA-to-English dictionary), the opening paragraphs note that what certain wording sounds like isn't actually what it means.

    This is from a little while ago, but I just had a chance to listen to a fascinating and eye-opening lecture by Professor Conor Gearty at the London School of Economics (LSE posts many of their public lectures online as podcasts, some of which are really excellent). The lecture was officially entitled: Human Rights, Security and the Rule of Law after Snowden. It caught my attention for a variety of reasons, including the inclusion of Snowden, but the bigger point of the lecture actually had very little to do with Snowden. It's really about the gradual and systematic undermining of human rights…

    With little to no fanfare, Samsung just took the wraps off its umpteenth entry-level Android smartphone, dubbed Galaxy Ace Style LTE. The 4.3 incher carries the convoluted SM-G357FZ model number and is not to be mistaken for the Ace 4, Ace 4 LTE or Ace Style. All of which have seen daylight earlier in 2014. Man, this is confusing. Fortunately, we presume the Style LTE is… Continue reading Samsung Galaxy Ace Style LTE discreetly breaks cover with AMOLED 4.3-inch screen Related posts: Samsung discreetly unveils Galaxy S3 Slim with Android 4.2 and 4.5-inch screen Samsung announces the Galaxy S…

    When Samsung supplemented its Galaxy Tab portfolio with a low-cost, low-end 8-inch option and a stunning, Super AMOLED display-donning 8.4 incher, it consciously brought the Tab Pro 8.4 dangerously close to extinction. Which was weird, given the Pro was merely six months old at the time of Tab S 8.4’s launch. Pretty soon, Tab Pros started disappearing from store… Continue reading Samsung Galaxy Tab Pro 8.4 drops to $250 at Best Buy, get it while you can Related posts: Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 8.0 price drops to $170 on Amazon ($80 off) Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 10.1 price drops to $330 via Amazon…

If the timing and location were right, it might have been a meteor shower show. Either way, there’s no contesting that a city’s air and light pollution really put a damper on celestial beauty. This same concept applies to enjoying music through headphones.

    Apple's iOS 8 is a free upgrade for iPhone owners who have an iPhone 4s up to the new behemoth iPhone 6 Plus. On the surface, iOS 8 looks a lot like iOS 7, but when you begin tapping down into it, there are dozens of new features and tweaks. Most everyone can find a few new features they can put to work to make their iPhones better than ever. Some are handy, some have "finally" arrived, and some are just plain cool. Here's your guide to the most useful and welcome iOS 8 changes to messages, keyboard, contacts and email functionality.
  • Apple and Oracle - Are We Suckers or What?

    Rob Enderle
    29 Sep 2014 | 5:00 am
    "There's a sucker born every minute." What's kind of funny about that famous quote is that there is no record of P.T. Barnum ever saying it, and there's a lot of evidence he was too smart to have done so. Whether Barnum made the observation or whether those words were uttered by any number of con men instead, the fact remains we are often excessively gullible. After watching members of the House Committee on Science, Space and Technology debate climate change last week, I'm not finding this at all endearing.

    There's just never a dull moment here in the Linux blogosphere, and the last week or so has been a perfect illustration. Not only did the Shellshock bug hit the proverbial fan, but the ever-burning Systemd flames flared even brighter, thanks to the addition of some fresh fuel. What was that fuel, you may wonder? Oh, none other than the little tidbit of news from the Debian team that it's decided to make the GNOME desktop default again -- and that Systemd was at least part of the reason.

    I give LG a little flak for constantly releasing new smartphones, but here's one with a twist. LG is pegging the Wine Smart as its first flip-style smartphone. Yes, the compact style is back, only this time its fuel is Android, instead of whatever arcane OS manufacturers might dream up. I suspect this is more about style than function, outside of a dedicated button for opening an instant messaging app. Still, it looks like a fun toy to take for a spin for a day or two.

    Linux -- the free open source operating system for enterprise, small business and home computing use -- is not used everywhere yet. However, its user base crosses nearly every industry. Linux is in many places today. It's in consumer products like TVs and computer networking gear. Linux drives services that users do not even know run Linux. Think in terms of servers, Big Data farms and cloud storage facilities. The analytics and Big Data marketplaces host and run platforms and applications on top of Linux in data centers and in the cloud.

    Akamai’s Prolexic Security Engineering and Research Team (PLXsert) is tracking the spread of Spike, a new malware toolkit that poses a threat to embedded devices, as well as Linux and Windows systems. Several versions of Spike can communicate and execute commands to infected Windows, desktop Linux and ARM-based devices running the Linux operating system (OS), PLXsert said in an advisory Wednesday morning.

    Bill Brenner
    19 Sep 2014 | 8:28 am
    Back in May,  my good friend Eric Cowperthwaite caused a stir with a blog post about security breach victims getting demonized for failing to prevent break-ins. Other industry friends passionately disagreed. My thinking on the matter continues to evolve. But as is usually the case, my thinking takes me to the middle. Companies that suffer a breach — Home Depot and Target have been among this year’s biggest poster children — are victims. They don’t set out to put their customers’ data in danger and they probably thought they were practicing all due diligence…

    Included in all the tweets and Facebook postings about the 13th anniversary of 9-11 yesterday was this from friend and co-worker Martin McKeay: Never forget 9/11 and terrorism. But don’t forget how many rights have been taken from us in the name of fighting terrorism. He’s got that right. There’s been plenty of outrage in recent years over the U.S. government running wild, violating our privacy in the name of security. The Bush Administration was rightly criticized over warrantless wiretapping. More recently, the Obama Administration and such government agencies as the NSA…

    Although these acronyms and the constant evolution of cellular and wireless network technologycan be baffling, the important thing to understand is that a variety of networks are used to provide data connections to your users ’ devices. As with the physical and diversity - related challenges of the devices themselves, you need to be cautious about assumptions for these connections.Speed or throughput of the network connection is an obvious constraint.

    As you might imagine, the networks responsible for bringing content and services to a mobile device are also notably different from the networks to which you connect laptops and desktops. Many contemporary mid - and high - end mobile devices include WiFi data connectivity, and when used in that mode, the device is connecting to a local access point, which, in turn, is most likely connected to a regular broadband - grade connection. In this case, the network connection for the device is fast, reliable, and low in latency — just as it is for the other computers and devices that are connected…

    Less than 5 years ago, when most mobile devices used their own embedded or simple real - time operating systems, it appeared to mobile web developers as though there were as many operating system versions as there were models of devices. Given that these operating systems tended tocontain their own varied browser implementations, with no option for users to upgrade them or install alternatives, the challenge of delivering a reliable web experience to all of them was almost insurmountable. Such browsers were typically very limited, and often derived from their WAP browser precedents, provided…

Very old mobile devices can be easily recognized by their larger, ungainly form, but following a period in the 1990s and 2000s, during which manufacturers sought to develop ever smaller devices, most modern devices are now of broadly similar size and weight. Not by coincidence, this is about the size that fi ts comfortably into an adult hand.A limited selection of device form factors tend to prevail in today ’ s mobile market place. Some…

    While they haven’t been ignored as much as the humble Mac Mini, there’s no denying that we’re about due for an iMac upgrade. According to rumours from 9to5Mac we might be seeing Retina iMacs hit our shelves in the near future. We don’t know when exactly, but 9t05Mac claims that the new machines are in the late stages of testing. The site speculates that they could be ready to launch alongside OS X Yosemite next month, but there is no real evidence to corroborate that. The betas of OS X Yosemite highlight resolutions of 6400 x 3600, 5760×3240, and 4096×2304, and…

The hashtag spread fast, and the #notinmyname video was viewed over 260,000 times. However, it also spawned a satirical response in the form of #MuslimApologies – a reaction to the idea that Muslims were somehow responsible for the actions of extremists. It was used to share…

    So when Google announced the latest iteration of Android at I/O back in June they revealed it only as ‘Android L’. This has led to a lot of speculation over the past few months over what the name is, Lollipop? Lemon Meringue Pie? Lion Bar? We’ve heard rumours and speculation, and now Google has thrown us what might be a little hint. As you can see it’s about as subtle as a horse on roller skates.

Megapixels and resolution aren’t the only things that make a camera good, and our own review points out that the One M8 does perform incredibly well in low-light areas thanks to HTC’s ‘Ultrapixel’ technology. Similarly the dual-cameras allow for a whole host of bonus…

    It seems almost certain that the next generation of iPads will feature fingerprint-sensing TouchID technology – the same we’ve seen in the iPhone 5S and 6. Cult of Mac is reporting that developer Hamza Sood has done some digging into Apple’s release of iOS 8.1 and has found strings of text contained hidden within that make reference to the iPad. One string reportedly says “Pay with iPad using Touch ID. With Apple Pay, you no longer need to type card numbers and shipping information.” This wouldn’t be surprising – such a move has been widely expected…

This would continue Google’s confectionary-themed naming tradition. Previous iterations of the handheld OS have been known as KitKat, Jelly Bean, Gingerbread and so on. As we already know, the new OS will be getting some “material” changes too.

    Potentially big news for an anxious Microsoft as it has been reported that the Xbox One outsold the PS4 in the UK last week. According to MCV, the console which has until now played second-fiddle to Sony’s machine took the lead thanks to the release of Fifa 15 and a price cut that saw the console cut to £329 – or £349 with Fifa 15. (Sony later followed with its own price cut). According to MCV’s source, sales of the Xbox One jumped 155% – and whilst the PS4 was also boosted by 80%, the difference allowed Microsoft to edge ahead. It’ll be interesting to see…

That’s not all, as it can also do 1080p at 120 frames per second (great for slow motions video recording,) and takes 12 megapixel images, up to 30 per second. On the inside you’ll find a processor that is twice a fast as what was in the GoPro Hero3+ Black Edition, as well as a redesigned microphone with double the dynamic range as the previous model.

    After China placed limitations on candidates for Hong Kong’s city leader, Hong Kong erupted in protest. This, of course, presents a large challenge to Xi Jinping and the PRC. Edward Wong and Chris Buckley write for the Times: China’s Communist Party has ample experience extinguishing unrest. For years it has used a deft mix of censorship, arrests, armed force and, increasingly, money, to repress or soften calls for political change. But as he faces massive street demonstrations in Hong Kong pressing for more democracy in the territory, the toolbox of President Xi Jinping of China…

    When I was growing up, I was fascinated by space. One of my earliest memories—and I know this is strange—is, when I was four or five years old, trying to grasp the concept of emptiness in space. I imagined the vast emptiness of space between galaxies, nothing but emptiness. I tried to imagine what that meant, but most of all, I tried to imagine what it would look like. That question, what color empty space would be, rolled around my brain the most. I couldn’t shake it. I would be doing something–playing Nintendo, coloring, whatever–and that question would pop into my…

    One Plus has managed to generate a lot of publicity and interest for a brand new company. Their first device – the One Plus One, was dubbed as the “Flagship Killer”. Extremely limited availability has prevented the device from registering even a blip in the world wide sales figures. However, the One did receive widespread acclaim for its high quality hardware and extremely competitive pricing. Today Carl Pei and David S from One Plus One answered questions from Redditors in an AMA. Here are some of the most interesting tidbits from their AMA. David and Carl On India Plans One Plus had…

    Everyone has something to hide. With smartphones becoming deeply integrated with each and every facet of our life, it’s only but natural that they’d contain sensitive data. And, as the recent iCloud breaches have shown us, some times it’s better to have private stuff on your device and within your control, instead of cloud storages that can be hacked remotely. Andrognito is an Android app that can hide and secure any file on your Android smartphone. The developer — Aritra Roy from Kolkata, India – named the app as a fusion of the words Android and Incognito. The app applies…

  • DisplaySearch: the plastic AMOLED based Apple Watch display costs over $27 to make

    26 Sep 2014 | 1:31 am
    DisplaySearch estimate that the plastic OLED display used in the Apple Watch costs more than $27 (this is the production cost, not the display price). They say it is difficult to know for sure as the cost is highly dependent on yield rates at LG Display's fab and they do not know it yet. They assume a 60% yield rate for the $27 estimation.The $27 estimate includes the plastic AMOLED module, the touch panel interface and the cover glass (sapphire or glass, depends on the Watch model).Read more about DisplaySearch: the plastic AMOLED based Apple Watch display costs over $27 to make

  • Faster STT-MRAM via different field-like orientation

    31 Aug 2014 | 4:13 am
    Researchers from the A*STAR institute in Singapore suggest a new design that could make STT-MRAM devices faster. Using a computational model, the researchers tried different designs for the relative orientation of the magnetic fields in both MRAM layers (the 'field-like' term).The strength of the 'field-like' term depends on the device geometry and the materials used. Devices with a strong field-like term has a greater potential to reduce switching times than for devices in which the field-like term is negligible. A better understanding of the field-like term is still needed, but this work…

In fact, consumer demand was—and is—so piping hot that Apple literally cannot make enough iPhones to sell. After four million online preorders within 24 hours and 10 million sold units three days after launching in stores, Apple's supply is not coming close to meeting demand. That is a good problem to have. But a buzz about how your phone bends in pockets?

    (Science China Press) Conventional 3-D metal printing is generally restricted to metals that have a high melting point, and the process is rather time consuming.

Through introducing a printing ink consisting of a four-element metal alloy, Bi35In48.6Sn16Zn0.4, with a melting point slightly above room temperature, a series of three-dimensional structures are fabricated conveniently in a cooling liquid.

  • The Role of the Reflective IS Scholar-Practitioner

    1 Sep 2014 | 3:55 pm
    While there will always be a demand for competent Information Systems (IS) professionals, let’s face it: in this economy, competence isn’t good enough. It’s the merely competent who will get the pink slips when the bottom line demands payroll cuts. The real plum jobs, the kind that provide tenure for those supercompetents who practice them well, are those that have more far-reaching implications than a simple ability to maintain the servers and keep the databases in order. One way to achieve this pinnacle of success is to become a reflective IS scholar-practitioner. What…

    Everyone knows that robots are merely lifeless machines, no matter how amazing their abilities may be. However, you may be surprised at how often scientists replicate the features and capabilities of living creatures to increase robotic performance. In fact, there’s even a whole branch of robotics called “biomimetics” dedicated to that single premise. The term biomimetics means literally to “mimic life.” Insects are one form of life from which biomimetic scientists draw significant inspiration for new types of robotic technology.

    From Valleywag: Ello is a bright and clean new social network that promises, in its manifesto, to stay free of ads, never sell your data, and not make anyone use real names. People are paying attention to Ello because other people are paying attention to Ello. It is invitation only. Invite only, so only the In crowd get in - Google approach redux. If only one could rely on the no datascraping promises - it's like promising not to be Evil.

    Here on Techdirt we've been pretty scathing about the way that Big Pharma develops drugs -- often poorly -- and then uses patent monopolies to keep prices so high that only rich Westerners can afford them. Of course, it's easy to complain about the flaws of the current approach, but are there any alternatives? We've already covered one -- using prizes - and now Carl Levinson points us to another potentially powerful approach: crowdsourcing. It's already been adopted by 'Project Marilyn' to develop a patent-free anti-cancer drug: The campaign will fund a xenograft experiment, which is the next…

    Techdirt has written often enough about how copyright is used to censor criticism. has an interesting post that offers a variation on that theme: copyright getting in the way of a scientific debate. A band of researchers has been tirelessly trying to demonstrate that a body of scientific work which rests on a paper from over 10 years ago is completely wrong. The only problem is, their argument isn't being allowed to stand or fall on its merits -- instead, copyright restrictions are interfering with their ability to make their case at all. The issue is that in order to…
  • DailyDirt: Traveling Fast Via Waterways

    Michael Ho
    29 Sep 2014 | 5:00 pm
    An enormous amount of cargo travels by boat, and historically, sea transport has been the largest carrier of freight. However, traveling over water isn't a very speedy mode of transportation (typically <20 mph), but there are some possible ways to go faster (though they don't come cheap). Here are just a few examples of sea-going ships that would definitely beat a slow boat to China. Chinese researchers are working on making super-fast submarines that can travel over 750 mph. The vessels would rely on supercavitation (aka forming bubbles around the ship) and some kind of liquid-membrane…

    Issued in 1981, updated in 1991 (to consolidate power, basically) and continuously expanded (mostly unofficially) since 2001, Executive Order 12333 (EO 12333) is what grants surveillance powers to our nation's intelligence agencies. Foreshadowing the severe twisting of the English language that follows (see also: NSA-to-English dictionary), the opening paragraphs note that what certain wording sounds like isn't actually what it means.

The lecture was officially entitled: Human Rights, Security and the Rule of Law after Snowden. It caught my attention for a variety of reasons, including the inclusion of Snowden, but the bigger point of the lecture actually had very little to do with Snowden. It's really about the gradual and systematic undermining of human rights…

    As gadgets go, 2014 has been the year of the smartwatch. We’ve seen most major hardware players release their takes on wearable tech this year, along with even more smaller, third-party vendors looking to get a slice of this freshly-baked pie. The frenzy led up to the announcement of the Apple Watch, which, love it or hate it, will most likely take the smartwatch mainstream when it drops early next year. Wristwatch communicators have been the stuff of tech fantasy ever since the days of Dick Tracy, when his 2-way wrist radio was introduced in the strip in the 1940s. That fantasy is…

    It has been well established that SEO is just as essential to a blog writer as it to is to a website content writer. If your blog content is not garnering a good readership despite the high quality of content in the post, it could mean that search engines are not finding your blog.

Ideally, striking the balance between quality and SEO would not only open your blog post to discovery, but can even lead to and sustain a loyal readership. Here are a few tips you can follow to make your blog post SEO-friendly: 1. It…

We're now 12 years past Steve Jobs' funeral for the OS at WWDC in 2002. While some people still find uses for DOS, I'm pretty sure that even the most ardent classic Mac OS users have given up the ghost by now - finding posts on the topic any later than 2011 or 2012 is rare.

    Microsoft recently removed August Update (aka Windows 8.1 Update 2) files because of multiple issues that occurred after users installed them. Users went to Microsoft Community forum complaining various issues. Issues including Black Screen of Boot error, BSOD, font rendering issues, etc. Initially Microsoft had very little to offer users a solution to fix the issues. Microsoft has now released Windows 8.1 August Update again to all Windows 8.1 Update 1 users. Now that Microsoft has re-released the update its obvious that the company have fixed the issues.

  • Restrict Google Forms to only Allow One Entry Per Person

    Amit Agarwal
    30 Sep 2014 | 12:38 am
    You have created a survey using Google Forms but people have quickly figured out a way to game your poll and tilt the results in their favor. They are submitting multiple entries, and because Google Forms will not record the I.P. address or the email of the form submitter, it is nearly impossible for you to separate the duplicate submissions from the genuine entries. How do you restrict Google Forms to only allow a single entry from a user? If you are a Google Apps user, you can always restrict the Google Form to accept entries only from users who are part of your domain and the response…
  • How to Collect Email Leads from Twitter in a Google Spreadsheet

    26 Sep 2014 | 6:25 am
    One of the best features of Twitter that is relatively unknown to most users is their Lead Generation cards. Your tweet, see live example, will have a button and when another Twitter user clicks the button, their email address is sent to your application (which happens to be a Google spreadsheet in this case). Whether you are a small website owner or an event organizer, you can use these Lead Generation cards to easily collect email addresses from Twitter users who may be interested in your product. For instance, Twitter users can subscribe to your email newsletter with a click without…

    You probably have a few dozen Android apps installed on your phone but the number of apps that you may be using on a regular basis is likely to be small. A recent Nielsen report says that the average number of apps used by phone owners is just around 26 per month. Another Comscore report suggests that people tend to cling to a few apps they like and that nearly three of every four minutes spent using apps was in any of four preferred apps. Now what is the best way to arrange your favorite apps on the home screen so that the apps you use most often are easily accessible? You can of course…

    22 Sep 2014 | 7:00 am
    The all-new HTML Mail app lets you compose and send emails using the new Gmail API. You can sign-in with your Gmail account and compose emails using the WYSIWYG editor, or if you are comfortable with code, switch to the HTML mode and write messages in HTML and CSS directly. The HTML Mail app sends emails using your own Gmail account but unlike the previous versions, it does not require full access to your Google Account. It only needs permission to compose and send messages on your behalf and would not be able to read anything else in your mailbox. The app is open-source but you can always…
  • Save SlideShare Presentations as Animated GIFs

    Amit Agarwal
    10 Sep 2014 | 6:39 am
    A new web called GIFDeck helps you convert any presentation hosted on SlideShare into an animated GIF file. All you have to do is specify the deck URL and the app will fetch the individual slides as images and stitches them all together in a single GIF that will auto-play and auto-loop. Here’s a sample GIF created from a SlidShare presentation on Steve Jobs. The app only converts the initial 10 slides, probably to keep the size of GIF within limits, but you do have an option to queue all the slides of a deck for conversion. While SlideShare does offer an HTML5 based option to embed…

    Data in its most raw form starts as an infinite, formless river of facts and figures, but with increased mobile adoption, workers in the enterprise are demanding beautiful data that’s consistent with the user experience they’ve come to expect from their non-enterprise apps. While Excel has been the go-to tool to transform tables into charts and make sense of raw data – it’s main limitation is the freshness of the data. By the time it reaches the business users, the info is stale. With more workers spending time on their mobile devices, it only makes sense for the enterprise to be able…

  • iPhone 6 Plus Review

    Terry White
    28 Sep 2014 | 9:11 pm
    Overview I’ve been doing iPhone reviews since the 1st one back in 2007 (if you want to see how far we’ve come, go back and have a glance at that one). So it’s become a tradition here on my blog and many of my friends and followers patiently wait for my take on the new mobile device. Normally I have these reviews done by the 1st Monday following the Friday release. However, my iPhone didn’t arrive until the following Wednesday (last week). I pre-ordered mine on day one, but apparently I didn’t make the 1st cut. Nonetheless, it did arrive a few days later and I…
  • iPhone 6 Plus: 1st Impressions

    Terry White
    25 Sep 2014 | 8:05 am
    My iPhone 6 Plus (64GB Gold Unlocked GSM) arrived late yesterday afternoon and everyone has been asking me “how is it?” So I thought I’d give a quick 1st impressions post now. I’ll have a full review on Monday after I have had a chance to really use the iPhone 6 Plus over the weekend.   Size Yep, it’s BIG! However, it’s not too big. To my surprise using it with one hand and reaching things with my thumb from top to bottom isn’t the problem. Apple includes a new “Reachability” feature that with a double tap on the touch ID sensor (as…
  • I went with this color laser printer

    Terry White
    22 Sep 2014 | 9:11 pm
    A few weeks ago I posted on my Facebook page asking for recommendations for a new printer. The requirement was that it had to be color and be ready to print when I’m ready to print. In other words I print very infrequently and my frustration with inkjet printers is that some models dry up when not used regularly and take lots of ink just to get the nozzles clean and printing again. My previous office printers had all been Xerox Phaser (dry ink) printers. While these printers have always served me well, it was going to be overkill to get another one as I just don’t print that often…
  • Don’t buy another USB wall charger for your phone!

    Terry White
    21 Sep 2014 | 9:11 pm
    Your smartphone probably came with a USB wall charger. Chances are you probably need or at least would find it convenient to have more than one. Perhaps one at your desk, one by the bed and maybe one in your travel bag. A quick check shows that the retail price of an Apple USB wall charger is $19. Of course you could get ANY 3rd party wall charger for half that price or less. However, even at $9 for a good quality generic charger you might want to consider a different option. If you’re buying a charger that’s going to have a permanent home under your desk, behind a nightstand,…

    The Evangelist Marketing Institute -- Alex L. Goldfayn -- Techniques For Revenue Growth

  • Revenue Questions

    Alex Goldfayn
    22 Sep 2014 | 5:41 am
    Are you making time for revenue growth? It’s a proactive pursuit. You cannot spend your days reacting to customers’ issues and significantly grow your organization. Are you behaving boldly? Because marketing it no place for modesty. You improve lives and companies. Act like it. Are you asking for testimonials and referrals regularly? These are among the best and easiest ways to grow sales. Are multiple people at your company consistently asking the “Did You Know” question? On average, customers are only aware of about 30 percent of all that they can buy from you.
  • Video: Focus On Your Value, Not Your Products or Services

    Alex Goldfayn
    18 Sep 2014 | 7:41 am
    Focusing on your products and services makes you one of a very large crowd. It commoditizes you. Focusing on your value, and the ways that you improve customers lifts you above the crowd. It makes you singular. It makes you money. These videos are based on my Growth Masters Annual Curriculum, a year-long learning program focused like a laser on growing your revenue!

    I often tell my clients that our work is a behavior change project:we’re trying to get your sales, customer service and marketing people to take one action daily that will communicate your value to people who can buy it. Revenue growth is a learned behavior (I teach it!) that’s made up of several core, critical components. Unfortunately, these mindsets and behaviors are not taught in school. If they were, we’d all be better off. Here’s what I wish they would teach us, and our children, in school:That the simplest solution is almost always the best one. In math and in…

    8 Sep 2014 | 3:49 am
    Here’s an “advanced” point that came out of a client workshop last week: when asking for a testimonial, don’t use the word “testimonial,” as it places unnecessary pressure on your customer. Instead, ask for feedback, thoughts, reactions, opinions, etc. “I’m wondering, how would you say you’ve improved since we’ve started working together? What, specifically, has become better?” Same goes for referrals: don’t use the word, which actually decreases the odds of you getting one! Instead, ask for who else your customer knows:…

She said that she would often hang around the directors and watch them carefully, almost as if she was shadowing them. “Since I was on Suite Life, I had been shadowing directors because I’m nosey,” she told Just Jared. “All the things that get you in trouble as a kid are the things that make you successful in life.

    Despite rocking the most beautiful Android smartphones for two years in a row, HTC is yet to report any profits of substantial order. In fact, of all the major OEMs out there, HTC seems to always be fighting the battle of survival.

    Samsung has taken great pleasure in taking the micky out of Apple at every possible occasion. Be it, when Apple finally decided to go with a larger sized iPhone or with countless advertisements, Apple has been on Samsung’s radar since maybe the chicken came of that egg. They were at it again, when the infamous bendgate issue happened where some of the iPhone 6 Plus were reported to be bending at one of the weak stress points. However, looks like Samsung must be on the guard themselves or risk laughing too soon without realising that all is not rosy in their own backyard. According to…

    After infamous Apple’s Bendgate controversy, Apple admitted that only 9 iPhone users were reported “bend” phone issues so far. But, instead of Apple’s explanation, new videos surface regularly which proves that there are more number of devices bending than company admitted. In the new addition of bending controversy, two kids made a daring (or stupid) video for YouTube viewers in which they showed how they bent the iPhone 6 Plus with bare hands.

There’s no doubt that classrooms are going digital – yet even with the increase in tablets, Chromebooks and other mobile devices, there remains a strong need to print.

The software giant raised its initial 7GB storage space to 15GB last year to match the offer of its rival Google Drive’s basic storage capability. In order to avail the extra 15GB space, users need to enable the auto uploading photos of OneDrive’s Camera Roll. Storage space of 30GB that is entirely free is hard to resist; it is the best offer…

However, the one thing that has been left immutable in mobile devices has been the battery type.

One of the main features that I look for in an app when it connects to Google Calendars is whether or not you can join a hangout from an event within the app. With Sunrise Calendar, this is accomplished very easily by clicking on the “Join video call” under the Hangout heading at the bottom of the event view. This works perfectly by opening up the hangout video call just as it would if you were viewing the event through the Google…

    Whether you like it or not, more ads are making their way to your mobile devices. Google is creating new ad units to lure in big names to advertise on their mobile platform. Out of the four new looks, three are full screen ads and some are interstitial ads that would take over your screen in between “logical break points” while you use the app. There would even be video and interactive elements. Basically, commercials are coming to your phones. Source: Inside AdWords | Via: Engadget

Ron Louks, president of BlackBerry’s Devices division, said they intend to introduce one “unconventional device” per year. “When it comes to design and being a little bit disruptive, we want that ‘wow’ factor,” Louks said. And he also revealed that they are working on another unusual device but he is not spilling the details about that just yet. Source: Reuters | Via: Engadget

  • How to Install Stock Mi-Recovery 2.0.1 on Redmi 1S

    29 Sep 2014 | 7:28 am
    Recently, we shared a guide on “How to install CyanogenMod 11 (Android 4.4.4 KitKat) ROM on Redmi 1S”. The procedure required the installation of ClockworkMod Recovery (CWM) to flash custom CM11 ROM. Apparently, several Redmi 1S users have flashed CWM recovery on their phone in order to install a custom ROM for improved performance or for other reasons. Perhaps, if you’ve switched back to MIUI ROM on Redmi 1S but are still running the CWM recovery, then you won’t be able to install the official MIUI OTA updates.

  • How Linking to Knowledge Could Boost News Media

    Frédéric Filloux
    14 Sep 2014 | 11:32 am
    A key way to differentiate value-added news from commodity contents is to rework the notion of linking. Thanks to semantics and APIs, we could move from dumb links to knowledge linking.  Most media organizations are still stuck in version 1.0 of linking. When they produce content, they assign tags and links to mostly internal other contents. This is done out of fear that readers would escape for good if doors were opened too wide. Assigning tags is not exact science: I recently spotted a story about the new pregnancy in the British Royal family; it was tagged “Demography”, as if…

    The Apple Watch isn’t just another iDevice, a “wearables” accessory to the Apple ecosystem. It’s a bold attempt to create a new kind of wrist-worn personal computer that looks like a smartwatch. In previous Monday Notes dealing with the putative iWatch and other “wearables”, I thought the new product would be a nice add-on to the iDevices ecosystem — a bit player that would make the iPhone more desirable —  but that it wouldn’t move the needle, meaning $10B or more in revenue.

    The key to creating a material that would be ideal for converting solar energy to heat is tuning the material’s spectrum of absorption just right: It should absorb virtually all wavelengths of light that reach Earth’s surface from the sun — but not much of the rest of the spectrum, since that would increase the energy that is reradiated by the material, and thus lost to the conversion more

    Major technical problems are posing a hindrance to Obamacare open enrollment. People are finding it difficult to log into the health exchange websites which are slow loading, and even if they do, complain that their data is incorrect and that costs are too high. All this has interrupted Obamacare enrollment. A recent CBS News report says that the Health and Human Services Department (HHS) plans to reschedule the open enrollment period for November 15, 2014 to January 15, 2015 in place of October 15 to December 7, 2014 as previously scheduled. Consumers will benefit with an enrollment period…

    19 Sep 2014 | 1:32 am
    A special report in the New England Journal of Medicine finds that Obamacare enabled 10.3 million uninsured Americans to get health insurance. According to a study by the federal government and Harvard University published recently in the New England Journal of Medicine, researchers estimated that the uninsured rate in U.S. declined by 5.2% in the second quarter of 2014, corresponding to 10.3 million adults gaining coverage by the Affordable Care Act. In the first quarter of 2014, a Bloomberg report was released finding that the challenge that the Obama administration face as far as health…

  • Is The Chupacabra Real?

    29 Sep 2014 | 9:51 am
    Is the Chupacabra real? The video below explains the possible species connections the Chupacabra could have. For example, is it a rat/kangaroo mix? Or what? Is the Chupacabra a new species all together? Is it a cross between two species?Many of the sightings that are hyped in the media are always proven false. That doesn't mean the Chupacabra isn't real. Nature can do weird things, and the idea of strange mutations isn't a crazy one. Until caught, the Chupacabra will remain reclusive, and mythological. The truth is out there.
  • The Real Sounds Of Hell

    28 Sep 2014 | 7:05 pm
    Researchers from a remote part of Siberia claim to have recorded real sounds from hell. They drilled a hole roughly 14 kilometers deep into earth's crust. The researchers noted an unusual amount of heat coming from the hole. After dropping ultra-sensitive microphones into the hole--to measure the earth's movements--they discovered strange feedback coming into the mics. The video below is a sample of what they recorded. It's the real sounds of hell. Maybe...If you get scared easily, don't watch the video. I warned you.'The last discovery was nevertheless the most shocking to our ears, so much…

A potential future treatment for obesity in humans!White fat to brown fat Humans are born with a decent amount of brown fat. Brown fat is the fat best used for insulation from the cold.

    Last week, I attended a Citrix analyst relations summit program to learn about the company’s direction and strategy.  While the main-tent program was longer on vision than it was on execution details, there were some aspects of the proceedings that I found compelling. First off, there weren’t a lot of net new things being introduced, other than some roadmaps shared under NDA and a truly cool multi-station mobile work experience demo. But that’s ok.  Too often, tech companies feel compelled to forever be pushing “something new,” when in reality IT pros need vendors to stick to…

Amplifier, preamplifier, tuner, CD player, DVD player, TV, cable box . . .you get the idea. As I organized my vast array of remote controls on the coffee table, I was blissfully unaware of any issues. That was the case until my wife just wanted to watch a movie one night while I was gone, and she had a conniption fit trying to figure everything out. There was no way she was going to invest the time to learn what to power up, and what…

    In skiing, the “black diamond” run or ski slope is often referred to as “high risk/high reward.” You receive lots of “reward” skiing the black diamond slopes, but you have a significant amount of “risk” associated with variable terrain, such as the presence of trees and the possibility of injury. However, the black diamond slopes are very fun to experience, and you can mitigate the risks with preparation, practice, and a really good skiing helmet. Data science is one of those “high risk/high reward” concepts in technology. An organization can gain huge financial rewards by…

Disk storage costs have fallen from over $1,000 per GB to under $.10 per GB with 4TB SATA drives.

  • Modded Controller vs Tournament Controller

    9 Sep 2014 | 11:59 pm
      As avid gamers, we all know that we have a special relationship with our controller. Whether you play Xbox 360, PS3, PS4 or Xbox One, the controller you hold while gaming is extremely important. If your joysticks aren’t up to par or your buttons are sticking and just aren’t right, you feel it the entire time you game and that can have a negative affect on scores. By now you’ve probably heard of these things they call “Modded Controllers” or “Tournament Controllers” and maybe you’ve even started to look into one.

    Yesterday, I posted about LG’s and KitKat’s reaction to the bending iPhone 6 Plus. As expected, here come Samsung and HTC taking their turn poking fun at Apple’s #bendgate. Samsung posted this on Twitter, showing the Galaxy Note Edge’s 5.6 inch display that curves at one side of the edge.   And followed it up with an ad showing a bent iPhone 6 Plus bowing down to the Galaxy Note 3 phablet. And finally, we have HTC with this clever tweet. Designed to withstand the most demanding environments. Like your pockets.#HTCOneM8 — HTC USA (@HTCUSA) September 24, 2014…

  • TVersity Media Server – New major version released

    21 Sep 2014 | 9:53 am

  • How to change IE Spelling language in Windows 8

    31 Aug 2014 | 12:35 pm
    When I first switched from Windows 7 to Windows 8. One of the first things I noticed was that even I was running Internet Explorer 11 on both operating systems, spelling control was not working the same way in IE 11 on Windows 8/Windows 8.1. In Windows 7 I was used to right click on a misspelled word and chance the language in case I was writing in another language in my default. In Windows 8 that is not the possible. My default language is Danish, but I often write in English as well. It toke me quite some time to figure out how I could get it to work in Windows 8, because I think it is a…

  • How to Fix no Audio Issues with FaceTime Video on iPhone 6

    21 Sep 2014 | 9:16 am
    If you are making a FaceTime call on your brand new iPhone 6, and the other party is not able to hear you properly, it is quite likely that you have not taken the plastic wrap off the phone. The noise cancellation microphone between the camera and the flash is covered with the plastic wrap on a new iPhone 6. This causes the iPhone’s noise canceling algorithm to malfunction when you make a FaceTime call (or any call with the speakerphone on). In order to fix this issue, just take the plastic wrap off, or, if you don’t want to take it off until you get a case (totally understandable), use a…
  • Contract Free iPhone 6 is Factory Unlocked

    21 Sep 2014 | 8:56 am
    This year, Apple is selling a contract free iPhone 6 from day 1 of its launch in the US. This contract free iPhone comes bundled with a T mobile sim card which is creating a lot of confusion about whether the phone will be locked to the T mobile network. Apple support executives are further adding to the confusion by saying that only T mobile customer care can confirm this. And T mobile reps say that one has to get unlock codes from them to unlock the any phone on their network, however, they are not 100% sure about the iPhone 6. I bought a contract free T mobile iPhone 6 on launch day and…

  • The New Pinterest Analytics Is More Robust than Twitter’s

    Denae Olberding
    17 Sep 2014 | 1:23 pm
    Pinterest is sometimes viewed as the latecomer on the social media scene. By all rights the platform’s visual focus should have made it an overnight success story, but it often takes a back seat to Facebook, Twitter, and even smaller platforms like Tumblr. But Pinterest has proven itself a top performer for businesses that take the time to learn to use it well. Now Pinterest is making its network even more valuable to businesses, with the unveiling last week of an expanded and upgraded analytics feature. Like the similar unveil from Twitter two weeks ago, the move is clearly meant to…

  • 5-Star Rating Yanked by Yelp? Court Says It’s OK

    Dave Paul
    15 Sep 2014 | 12:12 pm
    How much would you pay for a 5-star rating on Yelp? How about to make those bad reviews go away? So far, Yelp hasn’t officially offered anything of the sort—but a court decision earlier this month says they can if they want to. Yelp was taken to court in California on allegations that it was “extorting” business owners by pressuring them to pay for good ratings. Yelp denies the allegation, but apparently it needn’t worry: the Ninth U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals says that fixing ratings is fair play. That surprises many business owners. Yelp has become perhaps the biggest destination…
  • Google’s HTTPS Incentive Is Little Incentive At All

    Dave Paul
    5 Sep 2014 | 8:01 am
    Want to get more traffic for your website? How about investing in costly web encryption that you don’t actually need? That’s the proposition that Google put forward last month, when it announced an incentive for site owners to switch to HTTPS (hypertext transfer protocol secure). For the record, HTTPS is the more-secure form of the familiar HTTP, the protocol that transfers data over the web. Right now the majority of websites don’t use HTTPS because they don’t need it, but Google says it’s now using HTTPS as a signal in search ranking algorithms. In other words, make the switch and…
  • Google Authorship Comes to a Crashing Halt

    Dave Paul
    29 Aug 2014 | 12:54 pm
    Yesterday Google announced the end of its great Google Authorship experiment as it relates to search results. Author snippets won’t be shown on SERPs and authorship markup will not weigh in search ranking, effective immediately. Authorship has had a mixed history. While Google was interested in the idea as far back as 2007, it was only with the launch of Google+ that it gained any traction. Suddenly, authors could link all their work back to a single Plus profile and get credit across the web. But the victory was short-lived: by 2013 Google reduced how many author snippets it showed per…

    The European Commission has decided that Apple's tax deal in Ireland — which has allegedly saved the company billions of dollars over years — may be improper and constitute illegal state aid, according to Sky News. Apple told Business Insider it had done nothing wrong: Apple is proud of its long history in Ireland and the 4,000 people we employ in Cork. They serve our customers through manufacturing, tech support and other important functions. Our success in Europe and around the world is the result of hard work and innovation by our employees, not any special arrangements with the…

    PayPal founder, hedge fund manager and venture capitalist Peter Thiel isn't much of a fan of Europe, according to a video interview with the Financial Times.  "I think people in Europe are generally pessimistic about the future. They have low expectations, they're not working hard to change things. When you're a slacker with a pessimistic view of the future, you're likely to meet those expectations." Ouch. Thiel did have some recommendations for the continent, at least:  "You don't want to be a pale imitation of Silicon Valley," he added, suggesting that London was more likely to…

    The tech world is still stunned that after 37 years, Larry Ellison is no longer CEO of the company he founded, Oracle, even though his change in job title is largely symbolic. His top two executives, formerly known as presidents, are now co-CEOs, while Ellison has become executive chairman and CTO. The trio has insisted that this change in titles will pretty much not affect anything. All of them will keep doing the jobs they were already doing. Co-CEO Safra Catz even said point blank, "There will actually be no changes, no significant changes." But at a press conference on Monday during…

    Happy birthday Malaysia!! Just how awesome is our country, that we celebrate an Independence Day AND a Malaysia Day, not to mention 2 New years day, (or 3 if you count Awal Muharram). So on that note, I decided to use my IT skills for the good of the country. To be honest, my IT skills have never been up to par, my day job is more managing/planning/documenting than actual execution of ‘real’ IT work.

  • Is Malaysia’s Broadband slow–no it isn’t.

    Keith Rozario
    14 Sep 2014 | 8:31 am
    Recently KiniBiz did a piece on Malaysian broadband speeds, and once again the hoopla about how Malaysian broadband speeds are slow arose. Kinibiz quoted an article from Asean DNA which stated that the average broadband speed in Malaysia was just 5.5 Mbps, while Thailand, Vietnam and Singapore had speeds that were double that (or more!) The report however was inaccurate, and I think there’s a need to address the hoopla, because this happens often. There was a report couple months back that said Cambodia had faster speeds than Malaysia, and I wrote a post addressing that. This time I…
  • A Techie’s view on the Law

    Keith Rozario
    8 Sep 2014 | 7:30 am
    Are some laws worth following–in other words, are some Laws so idiotic that they should be ignored completely? That sounds anathema, because we have a romanticized definition of the law, we define the Law as a broad general agreement a society undertakes, and the law keeps society from tearing itself apart. In other words, the law is so sacred because without it–we descend into anarchy, so ignoring the law is akin to promoting anarchy. But I’m not speaking of “The Law”, I’m speaking of “A law”, specifically an Act of Parliament. “The…

    You all know how much I love nearlyfreespeech, it’s one of the best hosting providers out there. Here’s one more reason, recently they alerted me to a suspicious number of login attempts to my wordpress site, which usually means someone was trying to hack it. If you remember the post I did about the RHB bank scam, it’s quite common for hackers to inject pages onto a wordpress site to help them carry out banking scams. This was probably something similar. Fortunately, the guys over at nearlyfreespeech were not just kind enough to log the attempts and alert me, but even…

    Uber, a company that connect passengers with drivers of vehicles for hire and ridesharing services–is now banned in Malaysia. The Uber service was viewed as a god-send by citizens of KL simply because the existing taxi service in the city–is Shit! So why did the Government choose to ban a service, that was improving public transport in KL? For the small matter that it violated a couple of laws–no big deal really. Laws are made to be broken aren’t they? There’s no need to go into the details of whether Uber is legal or illegal, that’s an irrelevant point.

    If we continue to tolerate this form of “entertainment”, before we know it, our society would be watching live porn right before their eyes and be so completely blinded and numbed by the media to see it as harmless amusement. Heck, it’s happening now—a lot of people aren’t even able to tell what can harm us as a society with the kind of sex-obsessed culture we are creating. We’re becoming more and more reckless, not considering the values we impart to the youth who will be left to run this world when the future comes. Is this what marketing has come to?

    15 Jul 2014 | 5:48 pm
    With thanks to Matt Kieffer for the image The Multimedia Messaging Service (MMS) have been available on our phones for the last decade or so. It allows people to share their experiences via photos to their family and friends. Advances in technology have opened the door to brands to target these people. Mobile advertising as a whole is struggling with its image. The thought of banner advertisements popping up on a smartphone does fill you with dread. Big brands, such as Ikea and Starbucks utilise mobile advertising in the most engaging way. They both use a variety of rich media which is ideal…

    3 Jul 2014 | 7:17 am
    This is the big question – and it can be a hard one to answer. This article aims to do just that, providing lots of possibilities and information en route. Will your site be more successful as a result of reading what we have to share? There are plenty of successful websites out there. Equally, however, there are even more websites that are struggling to get any visitors and have not achieved any real success at all. It is difficult to figure out what should make one website successful and what makes another sink without trace. We can work out some of the elements of course, but we should…

    Ever wonder if there’s something hiding in the bushes at night or if your door seals are leaking heat in the winter?

    Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), which includes chronic bronchitis and emphysema, is one of the most common causes of death in the US. Often the result of smoking, it's characterized by a restriction of the airways. Four years ago, a device known as the Lung Flute received FDA approval as a treatment for COPD. Now, a study conducted by the University of Buffalo has concluded that the hand-held device is indeed effective at helping patients breath more freely. ..

    29 Sep 2014 | 2:37 pm
    While quick-release hubs certainly make it easier for cyclists to remove and reinstall their wheels when doing things like fixing flats, they also make it very easy to steal those same wheels. As a result, riders typically have to remove the front wheel when locking up their bike, or run a secondary cable lock from it to the main U-lock. Quick Caps, however, are designed to make doing so unnecessary – they're little padlocks for the quick-release levers. ..

  • My Closest Friends Said I’d Never Make It as a Web Designer… Then I Did This!

    John Morris
    10 Sep 2014 | 9:07 am
    In this episode of the John Morris Show, I teach you how to use Elance and ODesk to build a successful freelance web design business. This 6-part strategy is what I used to prove all my friends and family wrong when they said I’d never make it as full-time web designer. And, to be blunt… if your freelance business is based 100% on sites like Elance and ODesk.. you’re being foolish. You could be working less and making more by implementing the 6 simple steps in this video. Over time, these steps will start to seem a bit “magical” because you’ll have new…
  • How to Avoid Clients From Hell BEFORE They Ever Hire You

    John Morris
    21 Aug 2014 | 4:26 pm
    Some clients just suck. There’s really no nice way to put it. Learning how to expose and avoid them BEFORE you let them hire you will keep you from tearing your hair out (and stave off the gray hair for just a few more years). Of course, it’s fun to joke about it… but dealing with hellish clients is actually serious as… well hell! That’s because getting good at avoiding clients who just don’t fit well with your personality and how you operate will help you avoid getting seriously burnt out and overwhelmed. And, it’ll keep you loving your job which…

    Getting your first PAID web design client is the most important action you can take for your coding career… whether you plan to be a freelance web designer long-term or not. It’s THAT important because it immediately makes everything much more clear: You see if you actually like coding You figure out what your clients expect from you You understand what to charge and why And, most importantly… you gain CONFIDENCE. You get to see first-hand that people WILL pay you money to code for them and that you CAN deliver. On the flip side, NOT getting your first client leaves…
  • How to Position Yourself to Get More Freelance Jobs

    John Morris
    6 Aug 2014 | 6:28 am
    I was recently asked: “How do I fill out my profile on sites like Elance and oDesk? How do I fill them out in a way that’s honest but more impressive than leaving them blank?” Here’s the simplest way I can put this… Your unique situation can and SHOULD be positioned to highlight your advantages. For example, when I started looking to get hired for freelance IT jobs I was completely self-taught and I believed that was a disadvantage. I believed coders who had gone to school were in a better position than me and would have an easier time convincing clients to hire…

    John Morris
    31 Jul 2014 | 4:40 am
    Most freelancers and web designers immediately roll their eyes when I say the word, “branding”. Mostly because they’re thinking of big brand branding done by companies like Coke or McDonalds… that’s “not meant to actually make sales”. Yet, “branding” is how I get 99% of my clients. In fact, you’re here reading this right now because of the “branding” I do. So, if you can put aside all the mis-information you’ve probably heard about the word “branding”… Check out the video below and let me show you…

  • Why Some Games Need 64-Bit Support

    Miguel Leiva-Gomez
    29 Sep 2014 | 4:25 pm
    In the world of gaming, there has been a recent move by major publishers to release their games with 64-bit support. World of Warcraft, despite running for years on 32-bit, was patched for 64-bit support. Many people have decided that this is the way that gaming was going to move forward. But why exactly is 64-bit support so important for certain games? With the release of EA’s The Sims 4 with 32-bit-only support, there was some debate as to whether the game should have expanded to 64-bit, at least for machines that were compatible. Why is this? What does 64-bit support do?To understand…

For part 2, let’s dive into Android Wear’s default settings and tweak things a bit. It’s possible to change your watch face, adjust how long the screen stays on, change which apps are assigned to certain tasks, and more.

    Upgrade rage - what to do when things go wrong? Flickr/Nicola Albertini, CC BY-NC-NDIn the tech world there is a dynamic tension between needing to get products to market before the competition and the need to take enough time to make those products completely defect-free and user friendly. It is a tricky balancing act. Cut too many corners and release a product too soon, and you risk a withering backlash. Release a product too late and your competitors become established on the high ground and you are left playing catch-up. Finding the sweet-spot in the middle, now that is the trick. One…

    Flickr/Steve Jurvetson, CC BYResearch suggests science graduates are struggling with essential quantitative skills and science degree programs are to blame. Quantitative skills are the bread and butter of science. More than calculating right answers, quantitative skills are defined by applying mathematical and statistical reasoning to scientific and everyday problems. They underpin national and international expectations for science graduates. But at two Group of Eight universities, 40% of final year science students reported low levels of confidence in quantitative skills. We know what…

ElloEllo is new social networking space on the web that is receiving a lot of attention of late – so much that it’s caused a few problems with the website out of action from time to time. Ello’s new popularity is in part because it offers a different view to representing and monitoring our digital selves than Facebook. But Ello’s own privacy/public tradeoff is still evolving, and can teach us a lot about what privacy means online, and how contextual integrity, not just “personal integrity” matters.

  • HTC One (M8) bends just as much as the iPhone 6 -- and the 6 Plus is stronger than both

    Wayne Williams
    30 Sep 2014 | 1:29 am
    When reports first surfaced that the new iPhone 6 and 6 Plus were susceptible to bending after a just a few days of everyday use, it looked as if Apple had a major problem on its hands. Tech blogs and Apple haters were quick to seize on the flaw, coining the term BendGate. Apple downplayed the problem, saying it had only received nine complaints relating to bent phones -- out of ten million sales -- and now independent testing by Consumer Reports shows not only does it take a lot of force to bend an iPhone 6, but the HTC One (M8) also deforms when the exact same amount of pressure is applied.

You can imagine then just how important it is for Apple to have its new iPhones on sale in China as soon as possible. Due to regulatory approvals, it has not happened yet, but luckily for the company, that will soon change. Only moments ago, Apple…

    When I bought my first Chromebook, the 2012 Samsung model, I did it mostly for one reason -- price. I drove down to my local Best Buy and was blown away by how inexpensive it was; at $249 it looked like a MacBook Air and promised good battery life. Even though I knew the limitations of Chrome OS beforehand, I still handed over my money thinking I could find a place for it in my home. For the most part it was OK; I mean, it changed the way I thought about computing, but it soon became apparent that it could not replace my Windows machine. I didn't return it; I kept for basic typing on the go,…

Few people would argue against the suggestion that Facebook has all but given up any pretence of being a social network and has become little more than a huge cog in a massive advertising machine. Claims have been made that ads are being made more relevant to users, but the truth of the matter is that users are being made more relevant to advertisers.

    21 Sep 2014 | 4:43 pm
    Read an article the other day in Wired, A system to cut traffic that just might work, about two MIT students doing research to help Singapore better manage traffic congestion. They have come up with a sort of token ring network for traffic. In their approach every car when it enters a “congestion zone” is suppplied an electronic token and when that car leaves the zone it retires it’s token (sound familiar). When the zone is too congested, no new tokens are handed out and cars are re-routed around the zone using GPS provided directions. It seems a bit hokey but using tokens…

    I like to think that if software development had Ten Commandments, the first would be: Thou shalt not build something that doesn’t matter. There is no more profound waste of talent and effort than to have engineers build software that doesn’t get used by customers, or add-value elsewhere in a product. Unfortunately it happens all the time in both small and large companies. The result is a lost opportunity, a reduction in market momentum, and usually disappointment from everyone involved.

When you are building a company, you must believe there is an answer, and you cannot pay attention to your odds of finding it. You just have to find it. It matters not whether your chances are 9 in 10 or 1 in a 1000. Your task is the same. Almost every substantial breakthrough in my career has been preceeded by a period of time in which I had no idea how I was going to do what needed to be done.

But there is one ingredient that often gets overlooked: an ability to will something to happen. If entrepreneurship is the creation of something from nothing, that process starts with a belief the something can be made to happen. What is often started by the willpower of a single individual, can only expand by surrounding yourself with committed and like-minded…

We’re in week 2 of the 2011 football season, and NFL fans are tuning in like never before to root for their favorite team and players. The problem for some, however is that cable companies and the NFL are the ones who get to dictate which games they can or cannot watch on broadcast TV. Blackout restrictions and inattention to out-of-market teams (think the lonely Broncos fan living in San Diego) can make life rough; and if your a fantasy football fan forget about it: broadcast…

    Kevin Rose was just backstage at TechCrunch Disrupt and gave me a brief preview of his first app, called Tiiny, from his new development company North Technologies. He said it’s going through the app review process now and should be released shortly. Image is terrible but this is his story to tell when he’s ready. Website describes it as “Share tiny little photos that disappear after 24 hours” but it’s more than that. Pretty slick though.

    Every once in a while someone asks me who I think the best tech bloggers are and why. It happened today, in fact, back stage at TechCrunch Disrupt. I also have blogging on the mind in general after reading Jason Kincaid’s new book today. Here’s my short answer – A great tech blogger needs to be exceptionally good at (1) breaking big stories, (2) writing powerful thought pieces, and (3) doing live interviews. In my mind, there are just three or four great tech bloggers in the world. The average tech blogger, which is just a commodity, probably isn’t good at any of these…

  • Regarding Alexia’s Mind

    9 Sep 2014 | 8:58 am
    Alexia Tsotsis, the editor of TechCrunch, interviewed Peter Thiel yesterday at TechCrunch Disrupt. Pando editor Paul Carr has this to say: Alexia is the editor of TechCrunch. And that means she’s a competitor to the sites that regularly call out sexism, subtle or overt, that pops up in our industry. So she goes without defense. Not only does she go without defense from her peers in the industry, it’s actually one of her peers calling her stupid. Which is fine, she’s very tough. But if you see her today, let her know how much you respect her. She won’t show it, but…

    Apple has a very large problem right now. I’m not talking about legal liability over the nude celebrity photos and videos being posted all over the internet right now (dubbed “The Fappening”), although I think that’s also an issue. Celebrities tend to have aggressive attorneys, and the damages here are extreme – some celebrities have had careers ended from leaked photos (while others have benefited) But a much larger crisis looms – everyone, and I mean everyone, now knows that everything private they’ve done with their iPhone, if they use iCloud, is…

  • #Bendgate: Apple gets complaints as iPhone 6s bend in users’ tight jeans

    24 Sep 2014 | 7:30 am
    Early adopters of Apple’s latest iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus smartphones have complained that the superslim gadgets bend when kept in tight pockets or squeezed a little too hard. Various reports on the problem have sprung up in forums and on social media over the last few days, with the iPhone 6 Plus apparently particularly susceptible to the issue because of its larger size, which causes a greater bulge in the pocket, and therefore more strain on the device from the tighter fabric. Apple has made a lot of fuss about the slim design of its phones, making special efforts for slim…

In both the iPhone 6 and the iPhone 6 Plus Apple has produced two phones with larger displays than previous iPhones, which Steve Jobs had previously argued was the perfect size for comfortable use.

    Telecommunications giant Huawei is making another push to grab some of the smartphone market share outside of China with the Ascend P7, but how does the flagship 4G smartphone compare to the leading smartphones on the market today? Design Huawei describes the phone as lighter and thinner than the competition, and they may well be right with the P7 just 6.5mm thick (139.8 x 68.8 x 6.5 mm) and weighing in at 124g. That makes it slimmer than the iPhone 5S, Samsung Galaxy S5 and Sony Xperia Z2, and lighter than its Android competitors as well. However, beyond just its size there is little in…
